Abstract

Pt and PtRu nanoparticles were prepared by NaBH4 reduction in 1-n-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate and then directly incorporated in carbon aerogel. XRD measurements showed that both Pt and PtRu possess an FCC structure and most of the particles size is in the range 1-3 nm, as observed by TEM. The Pt and PtRu loaded carbon aerogel electrodes exhibited efficient O2 reduction and methanol oxidation electrocatalysis, respectively.
